Body Shaming seems to be the ‘in-thing’ to do for some miserable individuals who have there own internal issues going on.
Let me begin with the OBVIOUS… IF we were ALL supposed to look the same, we would have been created the same. …of course we ALL know this not the reality of the situation. We should be celebrating our individuality instead of tearing down those who appear different from ourselves.
For far too long we have been misguided and misinformed of what BEAUTY is. We have been ‘hood-winked’ into believing that a certain: height, weight, hair color, eye color, skin color, dress size, pant size, shoe size, nose size, breast size, butt size, hip size, arm length, waistline, shirt size, eyebrow arch, eyelash length, nail length, manicure/pedicured nails (ok maybe this one should be done at the very least) is beautiful. This is too much for me to even try to keep up with and I know I missed several items.
There is nothing wrong with embracing your imperfections because that is something WE all have in common. There are times when we simply put too much emphasis on what other people think about us. Especially with the invention of social media where total strangers get the opportunity to subject you to their cruel comments while hiding behind a keyboard.
One of the business ventures I am most proud of is Jewcee Boutique Erotic Ambassadors. These Lingerie Models are from ALL walks of life and are of ALL shapes and sizes. Each one of them is BEAUTIFUL in their own skin. They have embraced who they are and who they will become. They learn to LOVE their curves ~ their scars ~ their existence. Each time they step onto a runway they know that they are representing their body type. They also know that there is a woman that is sitting in the audience that needs that little boost of confidence to embrace herself and her body just as she is!
It is imperative that we continue to find ways to Celebrate our bodies with ALL of its: Lumps ~ Bumps & Chuckholes! We need to embrace our differences in our bodies as unique and unapologetic. From Stretch marks to scars ~ this is who WE are…beauty in its most IMPERFECT PERFECT FORM!
